Her research focuses on community based strategies and interventions to increase access to and the quality of health care services and reduce health disparities. She works with individuals across the life course, including immigrant children and their families, children and youth in the foster care system, and youth and adults living with HIV who experience homelessness. She has also developed national training programs and curricula for community health workers as part of a health care team to improve health outcomes. Dr. Rajabiun spent a decade working on community based programs to improve maternal and child health and nutrition and HIV prevention in Latin America and Africa.
This project will support 12 demonstration sites across the U.S. by developing, evaluating, and disseminating interventions that engage and retain Black Women with HIV in care and treatment. We will examine implementation processes and outcomes of bundled interventions and disseminate findings to inform the replication of interventions to Ending the Epidemic (EtHE). This project is funded by the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA), HIV/AIDS Bureau.Rajabiun, S., Walter, A.W., Tucker, K.L., Jennings, E.
